Expressed in the lung, in the ciliated cells of the airway epithelium (PubMed:25751668). Expression increased with differentiation of airway epithelial cells (PubMed:25751668). Not detected in the mucous cells (PubMed:25751668). Expressed in ciliated cells in the oviduct (PubMed:26170690). Also detected in stomach, colon, prostate and liver (PubMed:25751668). Expressed in breast, ovary, prostate and liver cancer (PubMed:26170690). Expression is associated with the level of differentiation of breast cancer (at protein level) (PubMed:26170690).
Not induced as part of the cellular response to endoplasmic reticulum stress (PubMed:25751668). Up-regulated by androgens and by estrogens in prostate cancer cells (PubMed:23294566) Up-regulated by a hormone (estrogen-receptor alpha) independent mechanism in ovarian cancer (PubMed:22361111).
